    I have a lovely watch for which I paid upwards of $3K. It is swiss, and mechanical, and if I don't wear it for the weekend it stops, unlike my $20 Casio. No surprise to anyone that both keep excellent time (when powered appropriately). So I "get" the idea of luxury items.

    IF, however, I were to run across an article about my watchmaker, claiming "some elegant swiss watchmaker's trick that makes you aware of each passing second, each hour, and invites you to grasp those moments as your own," then even I would by all means feel entirely justified in experiencing digestive motility.

    Definitely agree with you on that Bjorke. I bought my Ducati for me, and not to impress anyone else. Unfortunately sometimes these things become fetish objects to be lauded to extremes; which can be quite nauseating.
